New Experience With New Release

March 31, 2015 1:05 pm, Published by

The last few weeks have seen our biggest ever release at Arlo. The team has worked incredibly hard to get these features and enhancements into your hands. We really hope you enjoy the results of their hard work.

So what do you have to look forward to in this release?  There are a number of new key features as well as an even larger number of enhancements.  Some of the feature highlights are:

  • Event presets – the ability to create favorite event settings (or a set of them) that can be applied to events as needed.
  • New Order Lines Report – new report which can include the details of the order, lines on the order, payment, and registration.
  • Multi-region Xero integration – multi-region customers can now integrate with multiple Xero accounts.

And a few of the Enhancements are:

This is only a sampling of what’s available. Our latest newsletter will follow on from this blog and will outline the full set of features and enhancements.

For those of you reading our blog that aren’t clients, if you’d like to have a look at what we’ve mentioned in this post, you can sign up to try it out for free on our Demo Site.

And there’s still more to come – watch out for the next release at the end of April, as more strategic functionality becomes available. 2015 here we come!

Your platform will remain online and working normally for the majority of this maintenance period, but service may be disrupted briefly for up to 10 minutes.

When is the maintenance?

  • For New Zealand: (UTC+13): Sunday, March 8 between 11:00 PM and 1:00 AM
  • For Australia Sydney/Melbourne (UTC+11): Sunday, March 8 between 9:00 PM and 11:00 PM

What will happen during the maintenance window?

During this timeframe, there may be a short period of degraded performance of your platform (including your public website and management platform) which may last for up to 10 minutes. Outside of this 10 minute period, your platform will be online and functional.

Can people visit my website and register for courses during the maintenance?

Yes. Your website and management platform will be online during the maintenance, except for the brief period where the service may be slow or disrupted.
